"Only 500 of a planned 1,000 Racing Pumas were ever built, and only in the UK. The rarity of the Racing Puma, initially introduced as the Puma RS, makes it a valuable find. This was the final Limited Edition of the Puma produced and it features an advanced 4-piston motorsport braking system, a beefed-up body with lightweight aluminum components, and a racing-inspired interior."
—Official description[1]

The 1999 Ford Racing Puma is a FWD retro rally car by Ford featured in Forza Horizon 4 since Update 22.

Synopsis

The Ford Racing Puma is the performance model of the Ford Puma, a 2+2 coupé with "New Edge" styling based on the Ford Fiesta Mk4. It was manufactured by Ford of Europe in Germany from 1999 to 2001.

Drivetrain

Due to high production costs, the originally-planned turbocharged engine[2] was dropped in favor of a Yamaha co-developed inline-four engine with 1,679 cc (1.7 liter) displacement. The "Zetec-S" engine has an aluminum block, a DOHC valvetrain and variable timing on the inlet camshaft. It outputs 153 hp (114 kW) and 119 ft·lb (161 N·m) of torque.

Platform

Painted in Imperial Blue and featuring a low-slung widebody, the Racing Puma was inspired by Ford's high-performance RS cars such as the Ford Escort RS Cosworth. The body was modified with aluminium front fenders, as well as steel rear fenders and rear quarter panels that were bonded and welded on top of the original body.[3]

Handling was improved with a stiffened suspension with a revised geometry. The four-piston braking system by Alcon is derived from racing technology, and signficantly improves braking performance.[4]
